The Gift of an Avocado Tree
We recently received a most generous gift from my beautiful sistar Teri. A 6 foot avocado tree !! I am thrilled to have this wonder of nature on my property now. I have decided to name her a Ava Theresa. For those of you that think I am a little weird from naming my avocado tree, you may not think so if you knew what an incredible blessing it is to be in possession of one of the most healthiest anti aging fruit trees on the planet. At this stage, it feels like I’ve adopted a teenager. And in a few years this magnificent tree can grow up to 40 feet high and produce the most nutritious, delicious, and versatile foods you could ever consume. An avocado a day keeps me happy in a lot ways, I say! I have used this scrumptious fruit as a facial, a hair mask, in dips, smoothies and salads just to name a few.
Here are some of the beautiful benefits of consuming avocado. 54% fiber which is fat burning. Vitamin A,C,E,K and B6. One avocado contains 975 mg of potassium. The folate in Avocado can reduce heart disease. It can prevent strokes, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes. It is anti aging, regulate blood sugar and promote happy eye health. Promotes healthy hair growth and can relieve eczema. Some have even been known to eat the skin to rid of intestinal parasites.
Here is a recipe for a anti aging skin mask: One ripe avocado, a tablespoon of honey, the aloe from one stem or about one tablespoon and 2 slices of cucumber. First and it is optional : turn on some soft relaxing music. Mix everything but the cucumber together. Apply it to your face. Lay down and place the cucumber slices on your eyes. Relax for 20 minutes, rinse and glow!!
Here I am with no make up on at all and pushing double nickles!! Avocado’s Rule!
Shine as Love & Light,
